Question about Samsung SIR-S4040R DirecTV DTV Receiver / 35-Hours Video Recorder
It was malfunctioning on just Fox 360 and 29 so I called Direct TV and they told me to unplug it for a couple minutes and replug it in the same strip I had it in for the last 5 yrs. I also tried directly into a wall outlet. Nada !! I also tried unplugging for just 15 seconds and also for several hours. Also left it plugged in for the night and the fan continued to run, but no led's, picture or sound.
Your best bet would definitely be to upgrade recievers. You can call directv and see if they will give you a deal, or check ebay or call your local directv electronics dealer.
Hope this helps.

Your hard drive may have crashed. Can you hear any disk activity when you plug in the unit? The hard drive can be replaced, but probably better to either just get a replacement unit (you can get them on eBay for $40 or less) or upgrade to a newer receiver.
